Prices are based on 40 paying travellers & 2 additional free places. Quotations are available for smaller groups (minimum: 20 & 1 additional free place).
Prices quoted on this website are applicable for most of the year except for the period from the beginning of April to the end of July (high season).
Your quotation will include a sliding scale of prices so that you can see the difference in price between taking a larger or smaller group.
We can increase the number of free places if you require this (perhaps to raffle them to raise funds) but the tour price will have to be re-costed to take these into account.
Tours to European destinations are costed on the basis of travel via Dover in the first instance.
Prices are available on request for travel via overnight ferry from Hull, day-time or overnight crossings from Portsmouth or via Eurotunnel from Folkestone.
All our battlefield, poetry, cityscapes & landscapes & UK heritage tours include one of our own tour guides as standard in the price. Our Art & Christmas Market tours do not include a guide either because they are not essential in delivering these type of tours or because the venues themselves provide their own guides or audio-guides are available (& included in the price where stated on the itinerary).
You can choose to take your own tour guide (& deal directly with that person yourself) if you would prefer to do so.
We are happy to add a tour director to Art & Christmas Market tours. A tour director will manage the running & daily organisation your tour but will not necessarily provide a commentary or fulfil the role of a specialist guide.
A tour guide is included on certain categories of tour (see above).
Local pick-up & drop-off. More than one pick-up or drop-off point can be nominated prior to your tour's departure.
49-seat executive coach with air-conditioning, microphone & p.a. system, dvd player, reclining seats with seat belts, toilet, continental safety door. (A mid-sized coach will be provided for groups of 24 paying travellers & 1 additional free place to keep your price down. Such a vehicle may not always have a toilet on board).
Return ferry or Eurotunnel crossings (European tours). Cabin accommodation is provided if you decide to travel via overnight ferry from Hull or Portsmouth. Evening meals & breakfasts are also included on tours travelling via Hull. Morning or afternoon sailings from / to Portsmouth do not include cabin accommodation or meals on board.
3* / 4* B&B accommodation (on tours of more than one day's duration). Evening meals & packed lunches can be added. We can also re-cost tours using lower-priced accommodation if you require.
Entrance fees to all venues stated in the itinerary. You can change the venues we have included for other museums, galleries or attractions you would prefer to include. The price will be revised accordingly.
Optional: Travel insurance & costs of optional activities.
